    I'm trying to buy some tires, but unfortunately they are located in Roseville, which is 3 hours from me. I just don't have the time to take the 6+ hours trip and was seeing if anyone drives that route often. I'm located in Santa Cruz and can pick roughly 1 hour from Santa Cruz. I would be willing to pay for time and gas. I'm not sure if the deal is going to happen as it depends on getting the tires to me. Thanks.

    No one, damn. I know I'm new here, but was hoping someone was looking to make a few bucks for throwing some tires in their bed.

    Yeah if they were new, then it would be a different story.

    Damn, well maybe next time the tires will still be there. Thanks.

    Nope, nothing down there but 18's, 20's and 22's.

    The best I can do is I'm making a trip sometime later this month to Jerry's house for some work. I can meet you somewhere near San Fran, preferrably near Jerrys house :) I don't have a date set yet, but I'm guessing 2nd or third week maybe. Maybe sooner if I get crazy. Roseville is only a stones throw from me.

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I doubt the guy will have them then, but if so I may take you up on that offer. San Fran is a lot easier to drive to than Roseville.

    I was thinking about it and SLO is closer than Roseville, but for some reason I think Sac/Roseville is closer.

    Why yes Seth, thats a great idea. As long as they are paid for. That way if you forget about em, I gotta good set of spares to choose from right? LoL

    I don't mind. I'm sure my roomate (his house) hates me for taking over his garage, but I warned him!

    I may do that. I hate to buy tires without seeing them, but the look good in the pictures. What do you guys think? http://forum.ih8mud.com/tires-wheels/510910-4-265-75r16-cooper-discoverer-stt.html

    They are load E, which is the only downside, but he said he could do $180.

    Hey I'm still trying to decide if it is worth it. I really appreciate the offer and I may be taking you up on it.

    They don't look bad. Judging by the coin pic, they aren't scalloped. I will be in Roseville tommorow afternoon, ask him if we can check it out for you and get his address.

    Or just buy the damn things. If you do, I'll probably get bored and clean them up for you since they will be sitting for so long.

    Yeah I was about to pull the trigger, but got home and my girlfriend decided buying a new rug for our living room was a great idea. $150 later we have a rug. :facepalm:

    I told her I don't like rugs anywhere in my house...:taco:

    Plus she's being a bitch right now, so no go.
